I would like to reflect on the actions for this week. Monday's action was to attend a daily mass. If you didn't get a chance to, trust me, there are many opportunities for you to try this at least once during Lent. I warn you though that the deeply personal experience you draw from it, may leave you wanting more.
Tuesday was the reflection and preparation for the first scrutiny tomorrow. We pondered upon what we thirst for. What draws us into ourselves? It is the constant search and longing for our Maker. Our souls are united to Him and to Him we always want to return. He is what we thirst for and only in Him is our thirst truly quenched.
Wednesday's action was to read a great book. I picked up Richard Rohr's new book the Immortal Diamond. He discusses this book at the Religious Education Conference. I drew new meaning to Lent and the term 'death to self'' by reading this book.
Thursday's action was to perform a random act of kindness to a stranger. If you followed the website link, this was an easy task to acheive, well as long as you were out and about. The world presents us with endless opportunities for performing kindness to one another.
Friday's action was to make a plan to donate blood. This also can be done any time and is a way to give to those in need. Check out the link on 40 Ways for more information.
